I’ve been working on some large rectangular platters with a textured edge. After rolling the slabs of clay and shaping them with a plaster mold, I use a loop tool to create the edge texture by removing shallow strips of clay around the entire platter. When glazed, the glaze is thicker in the low spots and thinner in the high spots giving the edge amazing color variations. It’s a simple way to add interest to an otherwise ordinary large flat piece.
